Share NCSC’s civics education essay contest with civics leaders, students, and teachers
In recognition of Law Day, May 1, 2018, NCSC is sponsoring its fifth annual Civics Education Essay Contest. The question: Why did the Founding Fathers create three branches of government? The national contest is open to 3rd through 12th graders. There will be three categories of winners: 3rd-6th grade; 7th-9th grade; and 10th-12th grade. Teachers are encouraged to incorporate our contest question about the separation of powers into their lesson plans and have students submit their essays (of no more than 100 words) online at http://www.ncsc.org/contest. Deadline is February 23, 2018.

10 questions with Nicole Waters
At NCSC, we’re proud of the research we do, the advice we give, and the education we provide to our colleagues in the courts. And we’re proud of the people who do that work.
Nicole Waters, the National Center’s new director of the Court Statistics Project, considers herself a competitive person who loves her work, the outdoors, her family, volleyball, and snow, not necessarily in that order. Her love of snow can be explained by growing up in Minnesota and skiing on her high school’s slalom team. She no longer skis, but she plays volleyball year-round with her husband and enjoys spending time with her daughters, Lorelei, 7, and Eliana, 5.
